Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Reviews

It is in a roughish neighborhood (at night) but well worth a try during the day, as it is such a great pool. Clean water and very few people - at least when I visited.
A busy pool with no lane control. The lane ropes are loose, so with so many people swimming (many swimming very badly), it was pretty choppy. It is a great facility with eight wide lanes, so it's easy to pass people, over two metres deep the whole length, 28ºC, and paddles, fins, etc. are all allowed. The changing rooms and showers are fine and at €4.60 it's good value. (A euro is also required for the locker, and is returned). If you bide your time and keep an eye on the lanes you may be able to slip into a quieter lane; if you're a fast swimmer people will avoid you.
Opening hours and days are variable (as they are all over Bordeaux) so check the schedule on its website in advance.
[June, 2014]
Swim caps and brief-style bathing suits (for men) are required, which means nothing that looks like shorts or street clothing is permitted. It was relatively crowded both times I used it.
[November 2014]
I used this facility at 5 PM on a weekday and it was fairly busy. It is clean and bright. The water was clean and odour-free. Only one lane is open for use of fins and paddles; you cannot use them in other lanes. And, despite lanes being marked with different speeds, people swam in whatever lane and didn't move to a slower lane if they were in the wrong one.

The unisex changing stalls have two doors - one from the entrance to the building and one that leads to the pool; unique locking mechanism! Lockers are available for a fee, after one exits the change room, but you can also take your bag out on deck. There is a unisex shower area, as well as a few private shower stalls just before you go out on pool deck.
